At last, after all their promises, thanks Lindel.
I first went to look for my grandmothers family, which I already have the
details for but couldn't find them at first.
If you have a name that begins with Mc. McGinty in my case, and cant find
what you want at first, try typing just the bit after the Mc into the
box to see if you have better luck. Seems to be a bit of a difference if
the indexer has left a space between Mc and the main part of the surname.
Happy searching everyone,
